NEWTON, Isaac.
Cambridge / London: Typis Academicus / Benjamin Tooke, 1707. First edition. First edition of Newton's treatise on algebra, or 'universal arithmetic,' his "most often read and republished mathematical work" (Whiteside). "Included are 'Newton's identities' providing expressions for the sums of the ith powers of the roots of any polynomial equation, for any integer i [pp. 251-2], plus a rule providing an upper bound for the positive roots of a polynomial, and a generalization, to imaginary roots, of René Descartes' Rule of Signs [pp. 242-5]" (Parkinson, p. 138). About this last rule for determining the number of imaginary roots of a polynomial (which Newton offered without proof), Gjertsen (p. 35) notes: "Some idea of its originality ... can be gathered from the fact that it was not until 1865 that the rule was derived in a rigorous manner by James Sylvester." The final chapter, on the extraction of roots, is by Edmund Halley. "In fulfillment of his obligations as Lucasian Professor, Newton first lectured on algebra in 1672 and seems to have continued until 1683. Although the manuscript of the lectures in [Cambridge University Library] carries marginal dates from October 1673 to 1683, it should not be assumed that the lectures were ever delivered. There are no contemporary accounts of them and, apart from Cotes who made a transcript of them in 1702, they seem to have been totally ignored. Whiteside (Papers V, p. 5) believes that they were composed 'over a period of but a few months' during the winter of 1683-4" (Gjertsen, pp. 33-4). The course of lectures stemmed from a projec … [Click Below for Full Description]

D'ALENCÉ (Joachim)
Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1707, pet. in 12, de 5ff. 139pp. 2ff., illustré d'un frontispice et de 35 planches gravées par Schoonebeck h. t. et représentant les expériences de Torricelli, Pascal etc, pl. veau époque, dos orné, qq. ff. brunis sinon bon exemplaire. La première édition très rare est de 1688. C'est le premier traité consacré à ces instruments, et le premier à donner les règles de la graduation des thermomètres. Les expériences sur le vide venaient d'avoir lieu, c'est pourquoi il unit dans son traité les hygromètres et les thermomètres. ¶ Sotheran I. n°929 "The earliest account dealing exclusively with the subject, and especially valuable as the first work laying down rules for the graduation of the thermometer." - DSB p. " His detailed description of the principal meteorological instruments of the period is enriched with several new ideas, such as the calibration of the thermometric scale on the basis of two points of change of state: the point at which water freezes and - a much more contestable point - that at which butter melts." - Wellcome II. p.28 - Pas dans Poggendorff.

STRABO.
Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; small blind-embossed library stamp on preliminaries; a handsome copy in contemporary vellum; spine decorated in gilt between raised bands, leather label, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere.This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin).The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contributio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page. Translated from the English ("The history and present state of Virginia, in four parts," first published in 1705). Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. Church 821. JCB I 93. Near Fine First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the 'Rapacious and Arbitrary' English governors and objected to the 'heavy Impositions' put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia?including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith?which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed mat … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUFFON, Georges Louis Leclerc and] Bernard Germain Étienne de la Ville-sur-Illon, comte de LACÉPÈDE.
, . . Landwehr, Coloured plates 45; Nissen, ZBI 678; Schuh's Biobliography of mineralogy (online ed.), Buffon no. 4. The reptile and amphibian section of Buffon's monumental work on the general and particular natural history. Many species (frogs, snakes, lizards, salamanders, turtles, etc.) are depicted in their natural habitat. The work is here in the new edition published at Amsterdam and Dordrecht, the only quarto edition to rival the original French Imprimerie Royale edition. The last 2 leaves in vol. 1 give a list of the plates for both volumes.Georges Louis Leclerc (1707-1788) -- in 1717 his father became Comte de Buffon and Louis XV later made Georges Comte de Buffon -- was an inconspicuous student who only showed a special talent for mathematics. Initially he combined a career in finance with one in science, translating important works by Hales and Newton into French. In 1739 Buffon became director of the Jardin du Roi, later the Jardin des Plantes, and the Histoire naturelle may have originated as a description of the royal collection. It appeared from 1749 to 1804 and eventually comprised 44 volumes. Buffon was assisted among others by the anatomist Louis Daubenton, and the final volumes were completed after his death under the direction of Comte de Lacépède.From the Stedelijk Gymnasium Bibliotheek, with its stamp on title-pages and a few flyleaves. The present series on reptiles and amphibians had been followed (rather than preceded) by the series on minerals, so that the bindings are numbered 25 and 26. Bindings show some wear and abrasions.

VAUBAN, Sébastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de, Maréchal de France.
[Rouen: no printer,], 1707. Quarto (247 x 190 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt roll tool border to covers, spine elaborately decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. Large folding table, "Formulaire qui peut servir pour tout un pays" at page 192. Extremities with very slight rubbing, engraved bookplate removed from front pastedown with loss of marbled paper; a very fine copy. Very rare first edition, first issue (with B4 in uncancelled state: on p. 16, a setier is given as weighing 170, rather than 240 pounds), and a notable rarity, of "an erudite economic work much in advance of its time, and distinguished both by accuracy of method and breadth of view" (Palgrave), "creditable alike to the heart and the head of its illustrious author"(McCulloch). Carpenter lists six other printings dated 1707, all in smaller format, and eight subsequent editions before 1710, including the English translation A Project for a Royal Tythe (1708; reissued in 1710 as An Essay for a General Tax). "Though the book was published anonymously, and only a few copies issued [for circulation among friends], Vauban had to submit to the mortification of seeing it 'pilloried' by the parliament, while he himself incurred the displeasure of the king [Louis XIV]. A few weeks later he died" (Palgrave). Although the renowned soldier-engineer Vauban (1633?1707) wrote on a very wide variety of subjects apart from economics ? fortifications, war, naval matters, religion, agriculture, population and colonization ? the Projet d'une Dixme royale is an outstanding w … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLOYER, JOHN. - [THE FIRST PULSE-WATCH]
London, 1707-10. 8vo. Two contemporary uniform full calf bindings with five raised bands to spine, single gilt line-borders to boards and a blindstamped double "wave"-border at hinges. Gilt tome-numbers to spines and a very small old paper label to lower spines. All edges of boards blindstamped. Exceptionally nice and fresh. Also internally very nice, clean and crisp, with only very minimal brownspotting. With the engraved armorial book plate of William Constable Esq. to inside of front boards, and with a tiny stamp of Selbourne Library to verso of title-pages. A superb copy. (26), 440; (8), XXVIII, 468 pp. Fully complete, also with the advertisement-leaf. ¶ The seminal first edition - extremely rarely found with both volumes in contemporary, uniform bindings - of Floyer's magnum opus, in which he introduces the invention of the pulse-watch - the first instrument to accurately count the pulse and with which to make regular observations on the pulse-rate, constituting a giant step forward in the art of diagnosis. Apart from being the first to accurately measure the pulse and the attempt to establish relationships between the pulse rate and conditions of health and disease, Floyer's "Pulse-watch" also constitutes the invention of the second hand on a watch, a feature which has been on all normal watches ever since the appearance of this foundational work. Furthermore, with the present work, "Floyer may justifiably be credited with the invention of the first efficient instrument of precision to merit application in clinical practise. In his major work he gives an account of t … [Click Below for Full Description]
